I went to the project I worked on a couple of years ago and it was a bit discouraging at first. The bathrooms had not been cleaned in a while and the monk decided to add a second floor onto the kitchen and dining room I built, so it was a mess too. The clothes washing area and water tank were in surprisingly good shape.
At first I was a bit upset because things were not maintained. Then, I looked at the kids and they looked great. Their skin in the past was full of sores and they were filthy because they did not have a place to wash. Their clothes were dirty to the point of being disgusting. Now there are no sores and the kids were in surprisingly clean clothes.
The reason I took on the project was to improving the health and living conditions of the kids. They are markedly better than before I started the project, so on one level it is a success. On the other hand, the place is really dirty and it was very discouraging to see it.
I talked to the monk about it, and he assured me he was fencing the area and then he would commence with a proper maintenance program. I will be shocked it that happens, but we will see.
